How do I get booked for 8 off 8th?

The Mercy Lounge does not book the talent for this night. We have a group of hosts that put together the bills. If you would like to play 8 off 8th, we recommend one simple thing: come to 8 off 8th. Check out some great bands, talk to interesting people, network, have fun, and make some new friends. 8 off 8th is a community-based event, and participation is reserved for those who attend shows and support the local music scene. We maintain a local band database for our hosts to find talent so if you’re interested in performing at or hosting an 8 off 8th, please email
